    It was just another day on the job for 53-year-old Richard Phillips, captain of the Maersk Alabama, a United States-flagged cargo ship that was carrying, among other things, food and agricultural materials for the World Food Program. That all changed when armed Somali pirates boarded the ship.

    Story
    What did you like best about this story?

    The details of what was going on.... Capt Phillips's thoughts... the rescue fron the Navy's eyes...


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The rescue.... (the moves did a terrible job with it)


    Any additional comments?

    The audiobook was far superior in detail... the movie changed many things to shorten the story. I am glad I did the audiobook first, my wife didn't believe me so we listened to it together after seeing the movie.... we both agree the book is much better.

    Along Came a Spider first introduced Alex Cross, the brilliant homicide detective. When the daughter of a Hollywood actress and the son of the Secretary of the Treasury are kidnapped, Cross and the Secret Service are pitted against Gary Soneji, a murderous serial kidnapper who wants to commit the crime of the century.

    Robert Randell says: "Extremely disappointing"

    Too many good parts to pick a best... a great read, a great movie but the audiobook was by far the best of the options,

  • Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Annie M. says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "Listened to it twice so far."

    What made the experience of listening to Unbroken the most enjoyable?

    A great history lesson. Hardships due to war.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Several, probably the ending, forgiveness.


    Any additional comments?

    The persistence of Louie during the persecution.

    It is 1907, a year of financial panic and labor unrest. Train wrecks, fires, and explosions sabotage the Southern Pacific Railroad's Cascades express line and, desperate, the railroad hires the fabled Van Dorn Detective Agency.

    Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense pro who operates out of the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car, to defend clients at the bottom of the legal food chain. It's no wonder that he is despised by cops, prosecutors, and even some of his own clients. But an investigator is murdered for getting too close to the truth and Haller quickly discovers that his search for innocence has taken him face to face with a kind of evil as pure as a flame.

    If you could sum up Hemlock Bay in three words, what would they be?

    Lots of lost sleep... just couldn't turn it off and go to bed.


    Have you listened to any of Paul Costanzo and Renee Raudman ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first Paul Costanzo and Renee Raudman performance and now I am looking at others to add to my list. Absolutely great!


    Any additional comments?

    First Catherine Coulter book, found it by accident and a great find it was, looking forward to more of her writing.
